Pretty common situation, isn’t it?

There are many different ways to solve this problem:

Handyman can apply silicone over the leaking areas, making it leak in different spots in a few days time.

Unqualified Waterproofing Specialist can get the Waterproofing Membrane from the nearest Bunnings and paint the leaking areas with it, which wouldn’t stop the water for long.

Professional Waterproofing Specialist will do the High-Pressure Crack Injection, apply the Negative Pressure Membrane in combination with other materials performing External Wall Waterproofing – that will solve the problem for sure.

However, the best way to solve the given situation is to do the External Wall Waterproofing. Sure – sometimes it is impossible to access the external wall – but when it is possible, it is definitely the most reliable option.

How we do it:

– After finishing with all the digging, required to open up the walls for External Wall Waterproofing – we wash the dirt and debris from the wall with High Pressure Washer.

– Plugging any holes or cracks with Hydraulic Cement – all cavities and air holes must be filled.

– Rendering and flattening the nominated brick wall.

– After the wall is all nice and dry – applying TremProof 250GC Waterproofing Membrane.

– Applying the second coat on the day after.

– After the Membrane has dried – installing Protection Boards, using Sikaflex PRO Adhesive Sealant Polyurethane. It can be Cuspate Sheet, Coreflute Protector Sheet, VersiDrain 8 Geo or other quality Protection Board – and it is mainly needed for protection of Waterproofing Membrane during back-fill.
